Discourage Coyotes and Protect Pets
Do not?feed or provide water for coyotes or other wildlife. This practice abnormally attracts coyotes and promotes increased numbers of rodents, birds and other creatures that can provide major portions of the coyote’s natural diet. Feeding wild animals such as coyotes and feral cats violates City Code, and violators can face fines. Please do your part to make sure wild animals such as coyotes are not fed - either intentionally or unintentionally.
In addition, please do not allow small pets to run free at any time. They are easy prey. Fences do not guarantee your pet's safety. Always attend to small pets outdoors. For more information on discouraging coyotes from your area, see the City’s website at www.wheaton.il.us/coyote.
